What's In My Bag? (Girls Edition)
As girls, a handbag is a must when we go out on dates, outings, events, school, college; basically, everywhere we go. Even so, to pack what we have in our handbags is a whole different story altogether. The female thoughts are way beyond just the essentials, and no matter where we are and where we go, we are very likely to think further, or in other words, think too much. However, the bright side of that is, we will always be more than ready and prepared for anything that comes our way.
You may describe every girl as Mary Poppins with a carpetbag, where we have all our essentials ready to tackle any and every situation that comes our way.
The last thing we girls want is to have men tell us that we stink. That’s a fact. If we’re out for a very long day, we want to make sure we always smell good. Not only do we want to look attractive, we want to have a pleasant fragrance that would leave a deep impression.
2. Makeup Kit
To girls, makeup products are an essential. From lipsticks, to mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow, blusher, compact powder… you name it, we have it all! According to an article, women wear makeup because it’s said to make them feel more confident, sociable, and assertive. Going out with a bared face might seem like insecurity and it lowers a girl’s self-esteem. Because of this, many women and girls are driven by the pressure to wear makeup every day, no matter where they are and where they go.
3. Candy, Fresh Mints, Chewing Gum
A girl’s greatest nightmare — to be talking to an attractive man and only to find him constantly rubbing his nose from the tuna or garlic breath that came from your lunch. A stinky breath is a great turn off! Fresh mints, candy, and chewing gum would be the life-saver to save us from an awkward and embarrassing ‘stinky’ situation.
4. Hand Cream, Moisturizer
Ever wondered why and how girls constantly have such smooth, silky and touchable hands? That’s because we carry hand creams and lotion to keep our hands hydrated and moisturized all the time! A dry and cracked hand is not only uncomfortable, but can also be quite annoying when it starts peeling.
5. Hand Sanitizers
Ah, especially in this season of pandemic, where the COVID-19 virus has such a huge foothold on us, having hand sanitizers in our handbags is an ultimate essential and must. It can be a bummer if you go around to many different places at once, and not every location has a designated toilet, washroom, or wash basin to wash your hands. To make things easier, a hand sanitizer does the job to clean our hands quickly and efficiently, without hassle.
6. Facial Tissue And Wet Wipes
Girls are mostly the OCDs (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) and clean freaks! You will never imagine the great things these tissues can do. From cleaning, to wiping, drying, and all the other functions you can think of! This product is an absolute must-have in anyone’s bag, in fact.
Girls are undeniable shopping queens. We see it, we want it, we get it. Without our wallets, we can buy nothing!
8. Sunglasses And Scarf
All girls can relate – uneven skin tone is our biggest enemy. Besides making sure we use the right sunscreen to protect our skin, we also make sure we have sunglasses and a scarf for extra protection. On a side note, sunglasses make us look a bit ‘cooler’ too!
9. A Hair Brush/Comb
Our hair is one of the most important features that makes us look good and presentable. You wouldn’t want to show up at a job interview or social event looking like you just woke up from hibernation or like you’ve just been ‘electrocuted’.
10. TAG La
You might be wondering, why TAG La? Now, if you think about it, with all the above items in our handbags, our bags are too precious and valuable to be misplaced or lost. However, with the TAG La device attached to our bags and connected to an App in our mobile phones, we no longer need to be afraid of losing our ‘precious’ ever again. Apart from that, girls are fashionistas – wherever we go and whatever we do, we snap pictures and videos, every single time. So inevitable right? This TAG La device also serves as a selfie remote, helping you take selfies much conveniently, even when you are alone and have no one to be your camera person.
Now it’s your turn! What’s in your bag?
